2018 COMPLEX SYSTEMS SUMMER SCHOOL
June 10- July 6, 2018 - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
"The Santa Fe Institute Complex Systems Summer School (CSSS) is world class. Combining the latest thinking from world leading scientists, true multidisciplinary perspectives, and the passion from 50 or more of the best and brightest attendees is inspiring. With the diversity of people, country representation and perspectives, breakthrough research was established in a wide range of new areas. I commend the program to those that are not satisfied with the status quo, those that want to break new ground, and those who are the future leaders in their fields." - Matthew Ayres, CSSS Cohort 2014; Managing Director, Growth and Innovation Asia Pacific.
The Complex Systems Summer School offers an intensive four week introduction to complex behavior in mathematical, physical, living, and social systems for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professionals in the sciences and social sciences. The school is for participants who seek background and hands-on experience to help them prepare to conduct interdisciplinary research in areas related to complex systems.
The program consists of an intensive series of lectures, laboratories, and discussion sessions focusing on foundational ideas, tools, and current topics in complex systems research. These include nonlinear dynamics and pattern formation, scaling theory, information theory and computation theory, adaptation and evolution, network structure and dynamics, adaptive computation techniques, computer modeling tools and specific applications of these core topics to various disciplines. In addition, participants will formulate and carry out team projects related to topics covered in the program.
All activities will be conducted in English. Participants are expected to attend the entire session.
